Saturday was lots of fun. Aunt Kathy and Janea decided to stay and wait to leave until Sunday morning which I was delighted about since Beau and Eben were off enjoying wedded bliss and I would have been bored all day without them. We had planned on finding a sitter for the kids and us girls going up and doing a session at Salt Lake Temple then going to lunch but I was worried about leaving Joaquin for that long since he only nurses and won't take a bottle and Janea was worried about leaving Kaden, her 1 yr old, since he's a busy boy. So we opted out of that and instead just hauled up the kids and went with Aunt Konny to lunch at Noodles & Company. It was dee-lish! I had pesto pasta and yum-o! After that we went to the huge distribution center they have there and did a little shopping and then Aunt Kathy stayed in the van with the kiddos while Janea and I ran into Deseret Book to "tell the Easter Bunny" what the kids wanted for Easter. After that we came back to the house and hung out for a while. Then me and my Aunties and Joaquin went and had a visit with my mom. I had a hard time leaving Baily behind but I knew it was for the best. She was having so much playing with Emery and would have been rotten if I took her and would have stressed me out which I did not want to be at my mom's visit. It was fun to talk with all us girls. And of course, once again, my mom just ate up Joaquin and enjoyed her time with him. And I know it's hard to believe that at such a young age you can tell he loves someone but I could. Joaquin absolutely adored my mom. He just smiled and cooed at and snuggled with her. I loved every minute of it. After we got home and chilled for a bit Aunt Kathy went and picked up some salads and different noodle dishes from Noodles and Rumbi Island Grill for dinner and brought them back to the house. Oh my goodness... I was in food heaven! We had the Asian Salad, the Hula Salad and Thai Noodles and all just split it. It was sooo good and a nice change of all the same foods I'm used to eating. After we ate Aunt Kathy generously offered to watch our kids while Janea and I went and did more shopping at Super Target. It was so nice to shop without stressing about Baily and having someone to shop with to share opinions and ideas with. Good times. By the time we got home it was kinda late. I hung out a little more with Janea and the kids and I went to go put my kids to sleep and ended up falling asleep myself. It was such a fun day and I was grateful to have that time to spend with some of my favorite girl family members all day!
